Important Message from RISD  

Dear Parents:

Rains ISD has recently launched a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via phone, e-mail, and/or text messaging. Many of you have already received some form of communication through this service. If you have not and wish to receive this type of communication, please make sure your phone numbers and/or e-mail addresses are current in our database system.

You may update that information through our Family Access Portal or by contacting our PEIMS department at (903) 473-2222 ext. 4415 or 4416.

In order to participate in the text messaging service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. This process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453:  subscribe, optin, yes

You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following message:

You’re now registered with the SchoolMessenger notifications service. Reply STOP to cancel, HELP for help. Msg & data rates may apply. 3msgs./mo.

You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for all wireless numbers that you want to include.

Please note, although Rains ISD does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact your child’s school.
